I had wanted to make this a video message, but time got away from me. Imagine that, at this time of year! So, you are getting this written, but no less heart-felt message from me.
Do you know I’m crazy about you? Yes, you…my bloggy friends, near and far, in-person-known, and cyber-known. I’m blown away at the privilege of having you visit my little corner of the blog world and allowing me a peek into yours. I love doing life with you and loving Jesus with you and, now, can’t imagine my life without you.
So, it’s from the deepest part of my heart that I wish you Merry Christmas. May your time with family and friends be warm and wonderful, and may our Lord show Himself to you in a new and fresh way, causing you to remember this Christmas in particular for years to come. Whether you are traveling or welcoming guests into your own home, I pray you’ll take some time to pull back and reflect upon the magnificence of a virgin birth in a crude shelter; take pause to consider the hope found in the first revelation of this wonder to a motley crew of shepherds, a Savior born to save ALL men, regardless of station or rank. Oh, praise Him!
I’m heading out to Texas to be with my family this weekend and will be on break through the week. I look forward to returning to stories of your Christmases and bringing a few of my own.
Bless you sweet friends…so much love from my family to yours!
All my love,
Thank you Melinda. Merry Christmas to you and your family.
Praising God for His miracles and our wonderful Siesta community.
New to your blog, but want to thank you for such a nice Christmas wish. If I knew you were comin’ to Texas, I’d a’ baked a cake.
Merry Christmas to ya!
Merry Christmas to you, too, Melinda. I cherish our newfound friendship from this year. What a beautiful family you have. Enjoy every minute with them over the holidays!
Melinda — have a safe and wonderful trip. I loved your message. How precious and sweet you are. I love this blogging world I’ve been blessed to be a part of. It’s an amazing place, this blog world. Thank you for sharing your life with me! You rock, chick! Can’t wait for January.
Glad you dropped by before heading out of town. I’m equally glad you shared such wonderful photos on your own site!
Travel safe and return quickly. I look forward to more bond-building among our many friends here in the blogosphere.
I feel very humbled to have you in my little corner of life. Thank YOU! Your girls are beautiful, just like their parents.
Merry Christmas Melinda. I pray that you and your family have times of hysterical laughter, sweet peace and REST and that you all experience New Birth.
That’s a whole lot of pretty packed into your Christmas.
Back at you, friend. Enjoy your family and find some rest.
Merry Christmas, Melinda!
You have been a wonderful present in my life this year. May His presence bring you ceaseless joy at Christmas and throughout the New Year.
